' Welcome to My Nightmare '
regain some inspiration . Thank you .
I emailed the gif to a lady friend .
with the following Text attached . it sums it almost all the way up .
~~~~~~~~~ Email to Friend ~~~~~
Friend posted that gif , on the Forum .
whatever got in my feeble mind , to try chasing so many things ,
was it like : " buy my Ego a " Good ? " life ?
Building self esteem on ownership of spendy articles ,, ?? was it that insecurity of mine ?
Dreaming of owning , while I sat on a Beautiful Beach with a Gorgeous Sunset right
before my eyes , not satisfied with the Best ever ,, ( Beach , waves , sunsets , good friends )
because Meaning ,, meaning to me ,
was in ownership . Ownership ,, The Grab and Got'cha , the Curse .
Looking back , it was Tossing the Tennis Ball into the Surf for my Puppy on the Beach in Manhattan ,
back in the '70's ,,
that erased all other concern of what I dreamed to own one day . Him and I , in the moment ,
playing , fun , love . and ownership was out of my mind .
In time , sense came to me , I'd throw it all away to recapture those simple moments
in those serene settings , alone or with a love , or ,, Hopefully , a Puppy .
you know , I never really needed anything more than that , nothing has the meaning as those did .
So many moments since that day I came out of the Got'cha Grab , have come with the Beauty spent
in the Serenity of Nature .
Spent many ,,, so many of them , alone , no one there to distract , nothing to angst , and
every second , pure cleansing .
I spent 30 years chasing Objects , the next 20 ,, forgetting they exist ,
Is there a Paradise within ? I mean , as a child ? That we forget to tap into as we grow older ?
I think so , and in my destruction of it , the motive was to Own the big Toys .
Watching a Toddler play in Joy , yes , the glee scream ,, Paradise within is there .
it was there for all of us I believe .
been a long struggle attempting to find that child in me again , and let it come out and play
in the Grass ,,
Recall the swing sets at the Parks ?
just a Friend and yourself swinging , Giggles , the wind , the motion , The friendship ,
Simple swing , and Paradise was ours . and time went by without notice .
Didn't take a lot back then , Happy was as simple as a Swing Set .
Human Dreams , Puppy Dreams ,
I think I learned from Beepers how to be " Puppy " and Dream simple , dream pure , dream with
meaning in the Moment of simple joys .
I know she certainly set example every time I required it .
Human Dreams , Puppy Dreams .
That Picture , and I say " Yeah , That "
Just a picture that conveys such a beautiful Truth ,,
and ,, brings me such Inspiration .
So glad , that you like it , thought,,, no ,, I knew you would ,
so ,, wanted to share it with you .
Thoughts , Loves and Hugs for you
We may not have attained all we Dreamed of ,,
but we attained all the most Meaningful of our Dreams .
perhaps we're realizing that slowly .
~~~~ In reflection , in seclusion , in contemplation , we may find , who we were meant to be , rather
than Who we wish we were ~~~~~~~ and from that moment , become who we were meant to be , our Paradise ~~~~~~
I found a truth as well. Two of my four pups are terminal and it's not fun. But realizing that pups are always 'in the now' helps me see things from their pov.
Too often we higher beings are just plain thinking too much. Not that thoughts and dreams don't have their place, but the 'now' shouldn't be sacrificed for them unless the now is too shitty.
These days I'm enjoying just sitting with my two elderly bow-wows relishing being with them and occasionally allowing a memory of good times with them sneak through, and I'll ask them if they remember. Funny, they just look up at me and blink their eyes ~ so perhaps they too, sneak away from the now every once in a while, to just remember the joy.
